is about $100 million of cuts split between defense and domestic spending. so what you're going to see in september is a real fight over that. democrats have already in the budget they presented said we don't respect those caps because we are going to have a grand bargain in september. republicans said we already have a grand bargain, and those are going to run on. that will be enough to make it difficult. then the libertarian wing of the republican party all have items. one, and the senate, we will not pass the spending bills unless obamacare is defunded, and either done or defunded. you will see a 20-week abortion limit. it is a congress that has not function well or some would say even at all. but my only sense is that republicans are reading loud and clear -- if they should on the government again, it is going to be something like what happened to newt gingrich in 1995. republicans have newly taken over the house, they provoked a crisis with president clinton, the government shutdown, twice actually. in the end, republicans were blamed, and it clobbered them in the next election. r
of defense and the secretaries of all of the armed forces groups, got together to honor the veterans of the korean war. it was a sight to see so many korean veterans from so many different parts of the country. and they were reminded by our president that we had been labeled as those who participated in what was referred to as the forgotten war. because most all of the world knew about the importance of america being involved in saving emocracy in world war ii and vietnam. good or bad, people knew people that went there. but somehow in the middle of that, no one really missed us or knew where korea was or didn't appear that there was too much concern. d when we did return, unlike the vietnam veterans who really unfairly had been treated so unkind, fortunately for us, we were never missed except by our family and friends, people never they here we were and to us. weren't as kind veterans turned out from all over. comrades that were part of the 20 countries that were part of the united nations. and when north koreans invaded south korea, those of us who were called to go to south korea

to updated information i received from the department of defense just yesterday on time of day detention cost for fiscal year 2012 are $448 million m. for fiscal year 2013 estimated at $454 million. do the math. 166 prisoners, $454 million. we are spending $2.7 million per year for each detainee held at guantÁnamo bay. what does it cost to put a prisoner and keep him in the safest and most secure prison in america in florence colorado? $78,000 a year. against 2.7 million we are spending at guantÁnamo. this would be fiscally responsible during ordinary economic times but it's even worse when the department of defense are struggling to deal with the impact of sequestration including the furloughs and cutbacks in training for our troops. every day the soldiers and sailors serving at guantÁnamo are doing a magnificent job under difficult circumstances. i went to the southern command in miami and i met with the men who were in charge of this responsibility. i can tell you that they are saddened by this assignment that they are doing exactly what they're supposed to do. at great risk and great s
two, and you are the one in charge. i worry, as a follower of defense policy, that in the circles -- with the people whom you speak, and whom i speak, there is often not enough awareness about the fact that this but the decision is the result of the budget drawdown that preceded sequestration. some of that includes the budget control act. all of these services are busy observing the first cuts under the bca and additional reductions that started in 2010. it has been on a downward trend since then. this is the fourth year of defense budget cuts and reductions, three of which predate sequestration. this is a significant change for the army. if sequestered continues into next year, 80,000 may look like an overwhelming number, and that could be that there is more. what is the impact on troops and their families, what are you thinking about as you implement this? >> you are right, these initial cuts are the $487 million budget reductions we agreed to prior to sequestration. the initial cuts were due because we have increased the size and the army because of our presence in iraq and afg

the two parties. the defense ministry is still controlled by mugabe's party. military officials deny allegations a plan -- a vote rigging, saying the constitution outlines a new role. >> the president is the commander in chief of the defense forces. therefore, all forces are under a political leader, but as head of state. i must clarify that the security sector is not the government. they are state employees. they are loyal to the state. this, primes like minister morgan tsvangirai is telling his supporters that president mugabe needs the army to stay in power. they do not want another power- sharing government, but what each man will do to make that happen is worrying people. togo's election commission says the ruling party has one last week's parliamentary elections. the president will begin his third term after his union for the republic party 162 of the 91 seats. the opposition accuses the government of mismanaging the polls. but international observers say there were no irregularities that undermine the results. pope francis has left rio de janeiro after days of frenzy and fanfa

or what the defense said. as far as whether private manning is traitor, that should not be band aided back. it has a unique stigma to it. unless someone is going to prosecute him for treason he shouldn't be labeled a traitor. i think the claim he's a whistle blower is off based. he may have had what he considers good intentions but at the end of the day it's not especially to every citizen to decide whether to share the count country's crown jewels with others. >> that raises the question. barbara, i don't know you've done a lot of reporting. 750,000 pages were handed over to wikileakss and a lot of that posted on the internet. a lot of it was classifieied secret. it waunt higher classification. based on everything you've heard, how much real damage to u.s. national security was done as a result of this? >> this has been the debate all along and continues to be the debate in the snowden case. how much damage? people will tell you that bradley manning leaked a lot of information but it was information intelligence at a point in time. something that happened in iraq. something that happened

at where he's going to cut spending to afford defense, maybe he should look at cutting the pork barrel spending that he brings home to kentucky at $1.51 for every dollar and not look at new jersey where we get 61 cents for every dollar. maybe senator paul could deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon so that they can get reelected. >> are you going to take his advice, senator? >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. you know, we have two military bases in kentucky and is governor christie recommending we shut down our military bases? he wants to be this great champion of national defense. what does he want to do, shut down military bases in kentucky? in order to have enough money for national defense, you have to be willing to cut spending in other places. and governor christie and others have been part of this gimme, gimme, gimme, gimme all this money. we could have done the relief for sandy in a responsible way. i propose we do

and not letting enough money be left over for national defense. so i think it's precisely those people that are making us weak in defense. i didn't start this one, and i don't plan on starting things by criticizing other republicans. but if they want to make me the target, they will get it back in spades. >> one makes me think of a high school student council election, gimme gimme gimme. republican king of new york issued a stark warning to the party on cnn's state of the union. here he is. >> when you have rand paul actually comparing snowden to martin luther king or henry david thoreau, this is madness. this is the anti-war left wing democrats of the 1960s that nominated george mcgovern and destroyed their party for almost 20 years. i don't want that happening to our party. >> love this fight. joining me now are two msnbc political analysts. neither strong republicans from what i can tell. david corn with mother jones and jonathan alter who comes from an old line democratic family. the a beautifully written book by john alter, "obama and his enemies." it is a fair fight because they'

to try and justify why there was a call from the defense chief on wednesday for people to turn out because there's been a lot of discussion about the language and the reasons. a, why was he saying that if people turn out in large numbers that will give the authorities a mandate to tackle violence and terrorism what exactly did he mean by that? there have been a lot of violent incidents and some of them have been around marches in cairo and other cities but also violence incidents in the north of sinai with attacks on police targets and civilians. but not everyone's clear that there should be a link made between those two phenomenon. also, people are wondering exactly what -- why he called people out and why it was him that made the first step. i think all of the other politicians around this roadmap for egypt now, the interim authorities are keen to say it's in everyone's interest that the other side of the story is told. and i think that we're already hearing that now at a press conference by one of the groups who actually were instrumental in pushing for morrissey's over-- morsi'
